Among them is a young biology student named Suzano, played by actor Johnny Massaro.Best known for his Brazilian television roles—including a villainous turn in the soap Beyond Illusion—The First Fallen represents a major breakthrough for Massaro, delivering a stunning lead performance that anchors the emotional drama.As Suzano, the 30-year-old has received some of the best reviews of his career.
